Your official information source from the .NET Web Development and Tools group at Microsoft.
ASP.NET Identity packages are now available on MyGet. This means that a successful nightly build of ASP.NET Identity will be pushed to MyGet package feed along with the rest of ASP.NET Web Frameworks such as MVC, Web API, SignalR, EntityFramework etc
You have to configure NuGet to add a package source to the MyGet feed to pull in the latest nightly packages for ASP.NET Identity.
- Right click project and click Manage NuGet packages
- Bring up the Manage NuGet Packages dialog and Add a feed pointing to https://www.myget.org/F/aspnetwebstacknightly/ It should look like the screenshot below
- Once you add the feed, you can go back to Manage NuGet packages and search for Microsoft.ASP.NET.Identity. Please make sure you have the pre-release option selected from the dropdown so that you can discover these packages
The ASP.NET team pushes the nightly build of the packages to MyGet so that developers who are interested in following a project and trying out the features can easily access the bits. Having said this, please do keep the following in mind when using the MyGet feed for consuming the nightly builds
Update packages from build to build. Since the nightly build of the packages is versioned and has the timestamp of the build. If you use NuGet Package Manager console or the GUI – Manage NuGet packages, then you will be able to update these packages seamlessly.
You can head over to this sample project which demonstrates some core basic functionalities of the ASP.NET Identity system. Features such as profile extensibility, basic role and user management are demonstrated in this sample.
https://github.com/rustd/AspnetIdentitySample is sample showing you these basic features.
Hope you would find value in learning more about the features of ASP.NET Identity system and will use the nightly packages from the MyGet feed. Please contact us via comments on the team blog or reach out to me at twitter : @rustd in case you have any questions.
Thanks for the clear instructions. I get prompted for credentials when I do this and my myget credentials don't work...
Will ASP.NET Identity reach RTM with VS2013 on November 13th?
Please include build symbols/pdb files. It makes diagnosing issues impossible as my breakpoint just ends. And in light of early documentation, trace walking is one of the few options to see what the code is doing, and why it isn't working.
Because everything is based on interfaces, it makes it hard to see at runtime what actual objects have been loaded and with what properties.
